Some cool news out of the Overwatch League this morning as the Washington D.C. team has hired the first woman coach to the league. The team hired two new people this week with Molly “AVALLA” Kim (formerly the coach of Meta Bellum) and Mikael “mkL” Skjønhaug (analyst from Last Night’s Leftovers). Kim posted her news and reaction on Twitter letting people know the good news.
After spending one season in open divison, NA Contenders, and KR Contenders, I am finally here at @overwatchleague . As far as I know, I think I am the first female coach to make it here. Will work hard. I gave up law school to coach here 🤓

We have yet to know much about the D.C. team in the Overwatch League, beyond the fact that the head coaching position is currently run by Kim “WizardHyeong” Heyong-seok, who expressed his happiness to have AVALLA on board. We should know within the next month or so as the team has until December 1st to fill all their required team slots.
